Proud Supplier of the famous Sayklly's Candy

History of the famous

In 1906, a young Lebanese immigrant named Joseph Sayklly pursued the American dream by opening his own shop on Ludington Street in Escanaba in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Sayklly's carried a small line of groceries, including homemade candy and ice cream. Together with his wife, Mary, and their nine children, Joe built Sayklly's into a thriving local landmark.


Folks stopped by to take home a bag of Sayklly's famous candy or lingered at the soda fountain to savor treats made with hand-cranked ice cream (and maybe flirt with a sweetheart). Some of the biggest sellers in the early days, like peanut brittle, hand-pulled saltwater taffy, hand-dipped chocolates and fudge, are still sold today and tasty selection can be found at bostique!
